Learning promotes growth. If you’re not learning then you’re not growing. It’s healthy for the brain and you’re never too old to learn something new. Try and learn something new every day through reading, listening or doing. Continuously learning new things will help you become open to take on things you didn’t think you could do before.
Learning is important to motivation. Try and get into a routine of learning something new each day. This will help stimulate your brain cells and increase your overall motivation. If you’re a baseball player then try and watch a professional swing a bat and then try it out for yourself. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t but at least you know something new about how to swing a bat.
Your mind and body have to be challenged. Otherwise, you run the risk of maintaining status quo and possibly getting stuck. The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result. It doesn’t matter what age you are because we are all guilty of getting stuck in the same old way of doing things.
If you challenge yourself on a daily basis then you’re more likely to advance and complete the goals you’ve set out for yourself. So get out there and learn something new!
